Page 234 - FADING, still fading, the last beam is shining, Father in heaven ! the day is declining, Safety and innocence fly with the light, Temptation and danger walk forth with the night; From the fall of the shade till the morning bells chime, Shield me from danger, save me from crime.
Page 50 - The persecutions have long ceased ; and time and its attendant improvements have diminished the prejudices, and weakened the feelings of aversion with which they were formerly regarded. But they are still the race of Cagots still a separate family still outcasts still a people who are evidently no kindred of those who live around them, but the remnant of a different and more ancient family.
